Britons investigated for holiday villa scam


The suspects allegedly behind a holiday villa rental scam, which conned victims all over Spain and in the UK, have been tracked down by the Guardia Civil and include UK residents.

The method used involved stealing the profiles of advertisers on well-known holiday rental websites with villas in Alicante and Cádiz provinces.
